My box remains sealed, keeping it for a future time when it can get the attention it deserves.

I like the idea that you could just buy the top 6 or 7 shows, but that's somewhat subjective and would require the process of listening to every performance, unless you're content just taking someones word for it.

Which performances would earn your top choices? Are you partial to the extended jams on songs such as Dark Star, The Other One, Truckin, Playing in the Band, China Cat > Rider, Lovelight and Good Lovin when compared to the somewhat redundant first set song selections?

4/8, 4/14, 4/24, 5/3, 5/11, and 5/26 ?

4/8, 4/14, 4/24, 4/26, 5/3, 5/4, 5/7, 5/10, 5/11 and 5/26 ?

4/8, 4/14, 4/24, 4/26, 5/3, 5/10, 5/11, and 5/26 ?

If I were to pick a few selections I would have to be pretty arbitrary about it, since I actually have a relationship with almost every show. I also hesitate to get just a few of them because if I ever do decide to get the box, then I'll have superfluous copies of the same show.

Seems like the only point of buying any of them would be to buy all of them, since we all have most of these shows in such high quality anyway.
